Devin Duvernay, the former top recruit in Baylor's 2016 class, has informed Gerry Hamilton of ESPN he will not consider Baylor. Unlike other members of the 2016 recruiting class, Duvernay does not require a release from his letter of intent because Baylor never provided the Big 12 office with his letter of intent.
Duvernay is now down to Oklahoma, Texas, and TCU. His cousin Kyler Murray is now a Sooner, and Duvernay reported O.U. was the original runner-up to Baylor.
Duvernay did speak with Baylor, per Gerry Hamilton:
Duvernay also took a call from Baylor since June 2 with the conversation officially closing the door on the Bears.
“I have talked to the Baylor receivers coach [Tate Wallace] since the news came out. He asked me if I would still consider Baylor, but I told him that I would not.”
Duvernay's twin brother, Donovan- a 3 star CB, also was a member of Baylor's 2016 class. At this time, Donovan Duvernay has not been released from his letter of intent.
The Duvernay news is not shocking. There was little linking him to Baylor after Briles was fired, but this makes it official that he will play somewhere else. Duvernay is an incredibly gifted wide-receiver and will likely play immediately wherever he ends up.
